The Indian Valley Breakers runs September-July each year. The team participates in the National YMCA Competitive Swimming and Diving program and, locally, in the YMCA Yankee Cluster Swim League, a league composed of YMCA swim teams throughout the State of Connecticut. The Yankee Cluster offers a series of dual meets (head-to-head competitions with other YMCA teams) and culminates in a league championship attended by all teams in the league. Through the national program, Breakers swimmers have the opportunity to compete in regional and national YMCA competitions. The team is also a member of USA Swimming, the national governing body of competitive swimming in the country. In addition to swimming in YMCA competitions, our more experienced athletes (those in our higher-level competition groups) compete in USA Swimming sanctioned meets, both in Connecticut and throughout the country.


We practice in an eight-lane, 25-yard indoor competitive swimming pool.
